STEM SCHOOL: ENGINEERING - SCHOLAR (8 sessions)



Our program specifically designed for homeschooled students, ages 8-18, is offered in progressive, 8-week sessions in core topics such as biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, robotics, programming and more. Our curriculum is carefully designed to compliment state standards, but with our own, unique approach that emphasizes hands-on activities and "three dimensional" learning - giving students a more practical, relevant perspective of science. Our curriculum also covers all skill levels - so, with or without experience, students are sure to be challenged!

Builders, Engineers & Inventors

 

Week 1:

Building Bridges 1: Students learn different types of bridges and begin to engineer a bridge that spans between two points and will hold weight.

Week 2:

Building Bridges 2: Students compete with their bridges from Week 1, adding weight to test their limits!

Week 3:

Race Car 3D Design: Students design car parts that will be printed and then used for their own race car.

Week 4:

Race Car 3D Printing: Students learn how 3D printers work and then utilize their designed car parts to race each other on a racetrack!

Week 5:

Pulleys & Levers: Students build basic mechanisms with levers that can be used for increasing an applied force or changing the direction of motion.

Week 6:

Gears & Drives: Students build basic gear to learn how they can reduce or increase speed, change force, or transfer motion from one position to another.

Week 7:

Simple Machines 1: Students take what they?ve learned in prior weeks to build and race a vehicle powered by elastic energy.

Week 8:

Simple Machines 2: Students invent and build a mechanism to lift an egg 1 ft off the floor without breaking it!
